This is the way it should work. sys.path is global to the sub-intepreter,
so if both apps are running in the same sub-interpreter, then they share
sys.path (as well as lots of other things).

There are two things you can do - first rethink your app so that you don't
have to change sys.path, the second way is to ensure that the apps are
running in seprate sub-interpreters.

The manual has more info on this:
